What are cookies?
There are two different types of cookies: session cookies (which are transient cookies) and persistent cookies. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser and are thus not saved. They contain temporary information between page retrievals. Persistent cookies are saved as a file on your computer for a specific length of time (which can be as long or as short as the cookie’s creator wants) and are used to save settings and information for each time you visit the website.
